6:02 pm
triumph cruise ship are making approach and could make landfall this hour. the cruise ship went dark on sunday after a fire broke out in the engine room leaving 4,000 passengers on board stranded and without any power. now, the conditions on the ship have been haroing to say the least with the passengers reporting toilets are overflowing and food is scarce and sewage is everywhere. and joining us jonathan serrie, jonathan. >> reporter: sean, the excitement is building among the family and friends gathered here waiting for this ship to come in. latest estimates coming in between 9:30 and half past midnight central time. a lot of wild cards because this is a ship that's running on limited power. we understand that the winchs aren't working and the docking is going to take time and disemba
6:03 pm
disembarkation. one functioning elevator and most the passengers are going to have to carry their own luggage down several flights of stairs, more than 3000 passengers on board that vessel plus additional 1,000 plus crew members. so, a very lengthy and cumbersome process getting everyone off the ship and even, once everyone is off the ship and on terra firma, most of these passengers are going to be boarding tour buses, taking them either to their home ports in texas or for those who don't want to make the eight-hour plus drive overnight have the option of boarding a bus for a two hour drive to new orleans where they'll overnight and catch charter flights to their home destinations on friday. so, this homecoming process expected to be very lengthy going well into friday. at the very least, sean? >> let me ask you a quick question if i can. it's being towed in,
6:04 pm
obviously, so, docking it, how difficult the problem is that going to be? that's a pretty big ship to pull in. >> it is a big ship to pull in. and it doesn't have a lot of its own power, so the docking process expected to take longer, and the towing process has been cumbersome. earlier this afternoon, one of the tug boats reported a tow line had broken. and they ended up replacing the line, but it delayed the process by about an hour before the ship got underway once again. so, it has been a very complex and cumbersome process getting the ship back to shore, john. >> and joining us on the phone is brenda, trapped on the cruise ship with 30 members of her family. sorry what you're going through. can you describe the conditions on the ship and how is everybody reacting?
6:05 pm
>> yeah, everybody for the conditions that we are in, everybody is in good spirits. we've had food and water every day, so, that's been a blessing. the only bad experience that we've had is w bathroom situation, but you know, they clean it as much as they can. >> how bad. i understand that sewage has been sort of, as i understand only about four working toilets on the ship. so, is it-- i read one report they were asking people to go to the bathroom in a bag and sewage was running up and down and through the ship. is that true? >> yes, it is. i believe there's about four bathrooms working with several stalls in them, but for a few hours, for a lot of hours, actually, several days there we didn't have working toilets so we had to go in red biohazard bags. >> sean: you said there's plenty of food and water there. i understand that there's also been some issues involving people online getting food and then people the back of the
6:06 pm
line are upset if people were taking a lot of food. is that true? >> yes, well, you know, people like us with big parties, we would get in line and get food for several people and not just us. can you imagine if all 30 of us were in line at the same time and everybody was in big groups were in line and some people didn't understand you were taking food for more than one person not just for yourself. >> sean: i understand now. a party of 30, that's a pretty big party for a cruiseship. >> yes. >> sean: and is this one of the weddings, it was a wedding on board? >> no, we are here for my mother-in-law's birthday you celebration. >> sean: yeah. and is anybody that you know sick on the boat, anybody that's not feeling well? anybody, is there any panic or stress that you see that people are having stressful situation there? >> well, my aunt was the one that got taken out of the boat on monday for dialysis, that was my aunt. but other than her, everybody
6:07 pm
that i know of is okay. >> sean: okay, and you feel pretty confident you'll get into shore tonight and are you happy with how the thousand-member staff has handled the situation and knowing how difficult it is? >> oh, yeah, the crew has been amazing. they've had a smile on their faces as they're cleaning the bathrooms for us, that's amazing. >> sean: all right. well, free drinks for everybody and we wish everybody gets to shore safely. thank you, brenda, we wish you safe docking coming up perhaps in this hour. thank you. >> thank you so much. >> sean: joining me now to explain what health risks the passenger may be facing aboard is our friend dr. marc siegel. how are you. >> how are you. >> sean: sewage, dysentery? >> that's number one on the list, and amazing what the crew has been able to do, if that hasn't happen and brenda sounds like it hasn't happen and you get it on your hands and dehydrated, heat around there and smoke in the cabins. you have risk of smoke inhalation. the stress, i'm glad to hear
6:08 pm
her say that people kept their spirits up. you're he at sea for seven days, don't know when you're supposed to be brought in, supposed to be three days and people with underlying health problems and a person taken off for dialysis, her aunt, she said. and running out of medicine, high blood pressure. >> sean: assume people if they have medical conditions due to be on the boat for x number of days they probably were prepared. don't the ships have doctors and nurses and provisions and some pharmaceutical help. >> a full-time physician usually on the ship and nurses and i bet they were working overnight, all through the night to make sure that people didn't get sick, emergency provisions, if they'd been at sea much longer than this that might have been a problem. i'm definitely concerned about there having been a risk for dehydration. >> sean: my biggest concern, i'm not a big boat person and been on boats with friends and tried to dock a boat once or twice in little spaces and not
6:09 pm
easy to do that. are you a big boater. >> i have my own boat and that's a tiny boat, i can only imagine going through there. >> sean: the thought of that would scare the living day lights. >> and people have to keep calm in the circumstance, and that's when injuries occur when people panic. >> sean: the difficult part is coming up, getting this thing docked and off that ship safely. and then i guess the medical assistance will be there when they're on land. stay there with us, also joining us live on the phone, from the of powerless cruise ship is robert, foley who got married last weekend. i guess this is your honeymoon, rob? >> i'm sorry, i couldn't hear you. >> sean: rob, this is your honeymoon? >> yes, i got married on friday. >> sean: well, congratulations. and did you get married on the ship? >> yes, i did. >> sean: well, i hope this is not an indication of maybe some rough waters ahead in your marriage. i don't mean-- >> how are you. >> i doubt it. >> sean: how are you holding up and everybody else holding up? >> i'm doing fine.
6:10 pm
most everybody is in good spirits. there's really, the crew has done a great job. i mean, it's an unfortunate situation that he we all got into and i think that everybody has pretty much made the best of it. >> sean: and how about the sanitary conditions, that seems to be the doctor's number one concern. >> it was bad for 48 hours inform the power went out, only a matter of hours before they he started asking us to use a biohazard bag for to urinate in the shower and use the biohazard for anything else. and that built up pretty quickly in the hallways and you can imagine the smell and not to mention overflowing and things like that. >> how were you able to keep your hand clean using those kinds of condition. >> luckily, they have sanitary stations, sanitizer stations all over the ship, so, i pretty much--
6:11 pm
>> did you have drinking water, able to have drinking water all the time. >> yes. the water was out for better part of the day, they got the water filtration and water system back up and running and not such a good story, but they had bottled water for us and started running low and pulled additional cruise ships up and backed up. >> sean: you're not making light of it, but usually a lot of alcohol which may have helped the guests on one of the shims. rob, it's your honeymoon, this will be a story and assuming the docking goes well getting off the ship safely tonight. all the best to you and your new bride and our best for everybody on the ship. thanks for being with us. >> thank you, sean. >> sean: coming up we'll continue to monitor the carnival cruise liner as it approaches land and it could dock within the hour. first, major news tonight out of d.c. republicans block chuck hagel's nomination to be the next secretary of defense late

6:15 pm
>> now, trouble is brewing in d.c. tonight over president obama's pick to be the next defense secretary. now, as republican senators temporarily block a vote on
6:16 pm
chuck hagel's nomination, that was earlier today. delayed the vote until late february. now republicans say it's premature to close the debate over the nominee and say that before any confirmation vote will take place, they want answers from hagel and the white house about what exactly president obama was doing the night of the benghazi terror attack that killed a u.s. ambassador and three other americans. the first time a filibuster of a cabinet nominee has been used and needless to say this marks a major win for the g.o.p., and a pretty embarrassing defeat for the president. and joining me now with reaction from the american center for law and justice, jay sekulow and analyst juan williams, i don't always agree with leon panetta and i respect him and he said about the see skwquestration cuts, it going to hollow our military and devastate the military, and he chuck hagel says the budget is bloated. and missile defense, wants to disarm america of nukes and
6:17 pm
sanctions against iran, his controversial comments on israel and i can go on and he gave probably the worst hearings this i've ever even in my life, juan, in my lifetime. why shouldn't they be ska scrutinizing this, this is important time in terms of world history and defense. >> you must admit the news here. the news said that republicans in week they'll vote to end the filibuster and nobody in this town thinks that chuck hagel is one, going to resign or, two, going to be denied the office of secretary of defense. >> sean: that doesn't mean that-- >> a political gain. >> sean: i'm sorry, what goes on in that town necessarily probably means the rest of the country with disagree. let me show both of you how bad these hearings were. we have highlights of hagel during these hearings, he looked terrible, it was i am baring. watch this. >> name one person in your opinion whose 's intimidated by
6:18 pm
israeli lobby in the united states senate. >> well, first-- >> name one. >> i don't know. >> when you said that the surge would be the most dangerous foreign policy blunder in this country since vietnam. were you correct or incorrect, yes or no? >> my reference to the-- >> can you answer the question, senator hagel? the question is were you right or wrong that's a pretty straight forward question, i'd like the answer whether you're right or wrong and they are you're free to elaborate. >> well, i'm not going to give you a yes or no. >> what do you think that the iranian foreign ministry so strongly supports your nomination to be secretary of defense? defense? >> i have a difficult enough time with american politics and senator, i have no idea. >> do you think it's appropriate for the chief civilian leader of the u.s. military forces to agree with
6:19 pm
the statement that both the perception, quote, and the reality is that the united states is, quote, the world's bully? >> i didn't hear her say that, by the way, united states and i think my comment was it's irrelevant in good observation. i don't think i said that i agree. >> sean: jay sekulow, your reaction? >> look, if i was in the supreme court of the united states and had a performance like chuck hagel had in front of the senate committee it would be a disaster. and the most famous line is the one he said there's a lot of things i don't know about various aspects of the secretary of defense's role and department of defense protocol, but i'll learn on the job. you know, and i disagree with juan on this, look, will the filibuster be broken in a week? i don't know if they're going to break it or not. i'll tell you this much, in
6:20 pm
washington d.c., and juan knows this, a week is a lifetime and when these speeches, let's get to the merits of what chuck hagel believes, when you get to the merits of it how can anyone in good conscience accept his view that we should have a consulate in tehran basically-- not basically, he did advocate and his issue on the-- he called it by the way the jewish lobby which is disparaging and say the israeli lobby, which is a technique and of course, lindsey graham really doubled that, and you don't get away with those kind of statements as secretary of defense. >> sean: juan, stay right there. we're going to take a little bit of an early break because in a few moments we're awaiting a press conference on the powerless cruise ship that is approaching mobile, alabama and then senator marco rubio who time magazine reisn'tly crowned the republican savior has quickly become public enemy number one for the left and liberals in this country. why? for daring to take a sip of water during a state of the

>> and this is a fox news alirt. we are awaiting a press conference on the stranded carnival cruise ship. as soon as we get it. we'll bring you there live and still we continue with jay sekulow and juan williams. jay, you're making the point that he doesn't deserve this position, meaning chuck hagel. i think the republicans did the right thing today. i thought that was a disastrous hearing for him. give the specifics why. >> when you look at his position on the middle east and israel. he actually made a statement in a speech that he gave and in answer to a question, that if israel was attacked would the united states going to defend, he started talking about what a disaster that would be for world politics. he has this view of iran where, look, the president says he wants strict and severe sanctions. chuck hagel wants no sanctions. chuck hagel on israel was one of-- i think one of three senators that refused to condemn
6:26 pm
actions of anti-semitism that were coming out of the middle east. i look at the merits. his performance was awful before the senate committee. he certainly did nothing to help himself. look at his policies. i mean, remember the question on containment. he talked about iranian containment of nuclear, he says we have no position on containment when actually the president said he wasn't in favor of containment and carl levin coming in-- >> gentlemen. >> i'll speak as loud as i can. we're here to give you a brief update on the status of the carnival triumph and arrival back in the port of mobile. the ship is approximately five miles away at this point and still about 6 knots of speed. our current estimates are that the ship will be alongside at the cruise terminal between 9:30 and 10:30 tonight. 9:30 and 10:30 tonight. as i talked about before for those who were here before, once the ship arrives, the debarcation process will start
6:27 pm
shortly after that 9:30 to 10:30 window and expect because of the lack of power of the ship, the debarcation could take four to five hours so we're still in at that time frame for completion of the debarcation. in the terminal, we have two of our teams fully deployed. we have our guest care teams and our guest logistics team ready to receive our guests and make all the arrangement and help them through the process. inside the terminal, there's also warm food available, there are blankets. there are cell phones. and refreshments available for the guests that need that and want that assistance. our biggest focus very honestly though is to move the people as quickly as possible on to the roughly 100 motor coaches that are awaiting their arrival and move them quickly, as we talked about, for the options earlier. on their way motor coach-wise
6:28 pm
to galveston or to the hotels, what they've elected to do. our plan for friday is that the ship will move physically from the current cruise terminal to the repair facility here in mobile for us to begin the assessment of the repairs. we've had a lot of questions about our crew and what is going to happen with our crew. so beginning tonight after the last guest debarks, our hotel operations crew will have the option of either staying aboard the ship or being moved to a hotel. and continuing what's going to happen with that crew. the crew that the hotel crew that is very close to concluding their contract with us will actually go on vacation early, but carnival will make them completely whole in the compensation for the whole contract. for the crew that has recently joined the ship on contract, we'll be transferring them to other carnival ships over the
6:29 pm
coming days. deck and engine crew will remain with the vessel and they will help us tomorrow move the ship to the repair facility and then they will then also have the opportunity to be in a hotel and will probably stay with the ship for a period of time as we complete and assess the repairs. that's all the information we have tonight and we appreciate your time and interest. >> can i ask you, what-- >> that was terry thornton, the senior vice-president of the carnival cruise line and the ship lost power and disabled, and being towed back to mobile, alabama and they expect that it will arrive within the next hour or so. when that happens, this is the more difficult part of the operation as they try to dock the ship, disembark people and
6:30 pm
he said between five and five and a half hours and our biggest hope is that everybody is on safe on board. they have a hundred coaches standing by, buses, they're going to have some people back to galveston, texas, other people will go to new orleans and flying back to houston, where in fact they took off from, but it looks like this will be a successful rescue operation and we talked to a couple of people on board and maybe some of them are watching. we're glad you're making it okay and hang in there. coming up, patrick j buchanan will be here and respond to the left wing attacks on senator marco rubio daring to take a sip of water during a speech. that and more as "hannity" continues.

>> now, welcome back to "hannity." after being called the republican savior by time magazine, and the rising star of the g.o.p. and possible presidential candidate in 2016 no wonder democrats are stooping to new ridiculous
6:35 pm
lows to target florida senator marco rubio. it all started during the senator's response to the president's state of the union address on tuesday when rubio, wait for it, he dared to take a single sip of water. because there was no substantive issue to criticize, the liberal left went viral and rubio's quote drinking problem as one called it it, now called water-gate and wolf blitzer, very funny. i can't imagine that rubio is the only lawmaker to take a sip of water during a speech. he's not. watch on the screen and we plan to highlight well, some democratic drinking habits and problems. joining me now with reaction syndicated columnist, author, pat buchanan, hey, pat. >> how are you doing, sean. >> sean: doing good. taking a nice drink of water. look, you know, i thought that rubio gave the single best response to a state of the union that i've seen and a
6:36 pm
really terrific speech. handled it well and it's a different audience coming out of the state of the union. and they can't criticize the substance so they go after taking a sip of water. how stupid is this? >> well, i think that wolf blitzer ought to look at his own longevity at cnn with jeff zucker coming in. >> cross fire any day now. >> marco rubio has done a fine speech and it's gone viral. 1 1.3 military results and this doesn't compare with bill clinton when he introduced michael dukakis for 45 minutes and barack obama has had his own problems, that first debate he got wiped out. this is a little glitch and the first outing of a candidate who's not going to be running, if he does run, for about three years, it doesn't mean a hill of beans, it will be done with and wait for all of these folks to stop talking about it.
6:37 pm
>> i love watching it. we have only on the other side of the screens, all of these democrats are taking sips of water. if the media paid as much attention to the gaffes or to bill ayers and bernadine dorn, i would say all right, it's fair game. but they didn't do that. lets, a for example, show a few of barack obama's, well, gaffes he made over the years. >> over the last 15 months we've traveled to every corner of the united states, i've now been in 57 states, i think, one left to go. >> a lot of, i don't know what the term is in austrian, wheeling and dealing. on this memorial day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes and i see many of them in the audience today. >> the extraordinary work that men and women do armed the
6:38 pm
world. navy corpseman bouchard. like corpsman bouchard. >> sean: if you say in one sentence corpse-man, you don't know what a navy corpsman is. >> 57 states you reminded me of. is this more of a problem for say candidate marco rubio than candidate mitt romney saying he sat for 20 years listening to the lovely sermons of reverend jeremiah wright in chicago? and it's nothing, a little glitch and they didn't succeed last summer in painting and defining mitt romney before he could define himself and i think the very fact they're sort of piling on and trying to bring it up and put it in the public is to sort of define marco rubio as a young, sort of callo, nervous young
6:39 pm
man before marco rubio can define himself. they know what they're doing and they've got the major media behind him. and they've already started-- and it tells you they think that marco rubio is a problem. >> sean: it was only, you're exactly right. only one democrat that got it. and believe it or not, it was van jones. and he recognized that rubio is now going to be a rising star and a threat. let me show you how bad it got. good friend reverend al over there at nbc, pat. reverend al does, what looks to me like a "saturday night live" skit. i mean, this is how obsessed nbc news has gotten with this whole taking a sip of water bit. >> the republicans marco rubio's big night and what a night it was. okay. okay. where was i? senator rubio laid out the right wing vision for america.
6:40 pm
and-- oh, what was i saying? rubio brings the truth last night. i'm hydrating just like the senator. and what rubio was saying before and after his water cooler moment it wasn't so funny. that's coming up right after i finish my drink. >> a lot of water. but we're showing all of these democrats, pat, they're all drinking water. you give speeches and i drink water during speeches. >> sure you always have and tell the folks, have a bottle of water beside the podium, a glass of water and worried, i do a lot of gesture, knocking it off sometimes. >> sean: exactly, exactly. i have the same problem. a lot of hand waving, you know. >> exactly right. >> sean: all right. >> look, it does show that they're piling on the guy and they're very concerned about the guy, but this is going to continue, but it's not a bad thing to have marco rubio be
6:41 pm
hit behind the line of scrimage on the first time out. he's a young guy an asset, an attraction and he'll do just fine and this thing will be over in a week. >> sean: a lot of the democratic narrative talking points, they can't say he's rich. they can't say he's privileged. can't say republicans hate minorities, a lot of their narrative, their go-to play book they can't use with marco rubio and obviously they're going to have problems down the road. >> i think we've got-- i think that marco rubio is one of them and i think you've got some good guys in the republican party, the governors as well, come on in 2014, 2016. >> sean: patrick j buchanan, good to see you and get y self head back next live to alabama and the cruise ship and the boat is approaching the port. we will have the latest on this incredible ordeal when we come back, plus-- >> there's no reason now to again, it was basic, tinker toys, it was a kid's
6:42 pm
presentation of a philosophy reduced to maybe the 9th grade level. i'm sorry, that's what it was. >> sean: shockingly that anchor was not talking about the president's state of the union address, attacking marco rubio's response and that's just one of the ridiculous examples of media bias coming up in this week's media mash. by the way log on to our special companion site, "hannity" live. to share your thoughts on the live show. go to "hannithannitylive.foxnew. ♪ [ male announcer ] pain not sitting too well? burning to feel better? itching for relief? preparation h offers the most maximum strength solutions for all hemorrhoid symptoms. from the brand doctors recommend most. preparation h. don't stand for hemorrhoids.

>> welcome back to "hannity" on fox. we're awaiting any moment now for this carnival cruise ship called triumph making the final approach and could be docking even this hour, when that happens we'll bring that to you live on the fox news channel. time for weekly mash, the way that liberal media tries to put the liberal spin on the news. and they were in overdrive as president obama gave his address. and joining he me, the media research center, brother brent bosele, sir, how are you? >> hannity, how are you, this is cheers to marco rubio. >> sean: good for you. and i'm going to-- that's going to be tested as soon as you leave that studio,
6:47 pm
mr. bozell. let's go to go to nbc, a reag reaganesque, difficult speech to give and watch now nbc news covers it. >> i thought he was going to give his optimistic reaganesque speech. this was, this was a claws out kind of aggressive speech. >> i thought it was tinker toys. i thought it was primitive, something you'd hear in a high school debating time. almost like a yapper convention speech. young american for freedom speech from the 1960's, nothing original to it it, basic, tinker toys, kid's presentation to a philosophy reduced to maybe the 9th grade level. i'm sorry that's what it was. >> sean: if i was chris matthew i would say that's a dog whistle, a dog whistle. what are you saying? >> and it's an indictment, but it's a sign of the times if
6:48 pm
you're a republican giving a response to a president's state of the union address response, you've got to do two things, one you've got to prepare your response. secondly, you have to prepare for the media onslaught to the response that you gave. they're the fot going to ask you, did you realize that nobody asked him a single question about the substance of his speech? no one's asked anything about the speech that he gave. they've just hammered him for being who he is. and the third take away from this is that you'll never see a democrat hammered like he was, hitting him with all of these things he's taken, trying to create controversies. you're immediately in the bulls eye if you dare give a response to the president. >> sean: ironically, they're not paying attention to the substance. and hammering because he takes a sip of ward. and i do, at the awards banquet and you have video of me drinking, how awful.
6:49 pm
and the networks sworn john boehner and the liberal criticism. they scold boehner for criticizing the president for another socialist utopian speech. >> and speaker boehner told a group of reporters over breakfast and i'll quote, that the president does not have the guts to do what needs to be done. that's pretty personal and i wonder if it's helpful in terms of reaching compromises on legislation. >> and by calling the president of the united states out in such harsh terms today on the day of the state of the union address and questioning his guts and questioning his courage, and he's going to walk into that chamber tonight and hand you a copy of his speech and stand in front of you and people are going to be watching your face through that entire speech and you know what i think a lot of people are going to say, here we go, same old division, same old animosity, don't they have a right to say that.
6:50 pm
>> sean: and do you know what drives me nuts, president says that the republicans want dirty air and water and children with down syndrome and autism and they never ask him these questions ever. >> and my response to these reporters is wa, wa, wa, you sound like such whiney cry babies. >> sean: they really do. >> toughen up, fellas. >> sean: bunch of whiners. >> they dish it out. every kind of personal attack on republicans and good for john boehner for standing up for him once and saying something tough and you know, sean, i say the hell with them. the republicans have got to stop worrying about these people. >> sean: i agree. >> and stop kowtowing to these people. >> sean: the media will never like them, never like me, never like anybody who is conservative. i've got to tell you the president is gutless, he gave us 6 trillion in debt and will not deal with the substantive issues of entitlements ap the country borrowing 46 cents of
6:51 pm
every dollar. president blames george bush, that's gutless, too, here i said it. and that sounds like levin, i said it, somebody needs to say it. thank you. (laughter) coming up next, just been one of those days. the powerless carnival cruise ship is now miles away from the alabama port and expects landfall in the next hour. and we'll bring you the latest as it happens. and supporters of chris dorner the murdering maniac responsible for four deaths are now accusing police of intentionally setting to the cabin he was in. and more comments on the mainstream media in the wake of the manhunt. frankly the police had every right to put that place on fire. straight ahead.

6:56 pm
the cruise ship coming in. we're going to bring you the latest as it happens tonight and also fox news learned that the burned remains found in a cabin in big bear lake, california have been positively identified as the former l.a. police officer christopher dorner. made through dorner's dental records and while we can finally confirm that the manhunt is over, the conspiracy theories are already taking form. allegation are being made by his supporters that police intentionally set fire to the cabin that dorner was hiding in when tear gas was fired. many reference police scanner traffic to support this conspiracy theory. >> we're going to go forward with the plan, with the burners.
6:57 pm
now, just to clarify, burners is police slang for tear gas caniste canisters, and police deny that it was. and tear gas canisters can produce intense heat. we did not intentionally burn down that cabin to get mr. dorner out. >> sean: here with reaction to the absurdity is camera holder and katie-- tamara you were tweeting out. you have your ruby red slippers on. >> let me take them off. >> sean: you say they're $3,000 those shoes? >> no. >> sean: no, you didn't just say that. >> fox doesn't pay me enough for that, just kidding. >> sean: all right. we know what they were saying
6:58 pm
and they're running with this conspiracy theory and frankly, they were being fired upon from inside the cabin, they would have been justified to do that. >> first of all, i want to say i'm wearing cowboy boots and let the viewers decide what they like better. >> i didn't know it was a shoe competition. >> it's always a competition, tamara. and the theorists distract away from the real issue, this is a guy who killed two police officers, killed two innocent people. >> sean: three. >> three police officers and two innocent people and proud of it and planned to kill more people. >> sean: you're right, two. i mean, this is a bad guy, obviously, and police had him cornered and he just shot another officer on that day, tamara and they knew which cabin he was in. what do you expect them to do. >> liberals say stupid things. i'm not going to defend everything a liberal says and based on also the police sources that i spoke to they said they did absolutely the right thing.
6:59 pm
they had him barricaded they knew there were no hostages in there. why were they going to send in more police officers to possibly be executed and we didn't know how much he had. according to a complaint filed in federal court he had, he shot with assault rifles, with handguns, this guy had an arsenal and there was no reason to send anybody in there. >> sean: and by the way, on the screen, this is the challenging aspect to getting the ship to dock and appears it's going magnificently well after a harrowing experience. we'll continue to watch it on the fox news channel. let me show you what mark lamont hill said about this, and mark is not isolated in comments like this, but the people that were praising him, public figures that were reaching out to him with sympathy like your friend jesse jackson and charlie sheen here is what he said on cnn. >> this has been an important public conversation that we've
